|I drank a bottle of this last Thursday night, and came away very impressed. It's still a baby, and will develop for another decade at least, but it's delicious now. The nose is classic violets and tar, with a dose of oak. On the palate, it tastes of black fruit, with a note of bitterness that I like. The tannins are powerful, but ripe enough that they aren't excessively astringent. I decanted for about an hour, and the wine continued to open up in the glass.
I gave this bottle as part of a wedding gift to good friends, and told them not to touch it for at least 5 years. I know now that if they jump the gun, they still have a wonderful wine.
